Engine Repair & Maintenance Services
Cars and trucks are more reliable than ever, especially when cared for with scheduled maintenance. Newer more reliable vehicles do need extensive and well-timed maintenance to ensure the longest service life possible. Maintenance throughout your car, truck, or SUV is essential but the most expensive system in the vehicle is the engine.
Not only do quickie lube shops fall short on actual vehicle inspections, but they also don’t use trained service professionals. Merrill Automotive employs ASE-certified technicians and service advisors. Our technicians enjoy training. They are always looking for better diagnostic procedures and the latest automotive trends to sharpen their skills.
Do you want a cheap oil change with little regard for the actual performance of your vehicle or do you want the best care possible for the second largest expense your family has to incur?
What are some of the maintenance items I need to stay on top of? Engine oil, filter changes, and engine tune-ups are the first thing. But with longer interval service requirements, you want to make sure it’s high-quality oil, whether it’s conventional or synthetic. The filter is also critical, we use NAPA Gold Filters with all our retail oil and filter services.
Let’s replace the coolant, brake fluid, transmission, and differential fluids. These fluids protect vital moving components of the vehicle. As they break down, so does the protection. Replacing these fluids will help with longevity and optimal vehicle efficiency. It’s good practice to include one or two of these fluid exchanges while doing an oil service. It helps with remembering to perform the maintenance, but also saves you time between oil changes.
We Don’t Stop at Engine Maintenance
Don’t forget windshield wiper blades. These don’t seem critical until you are driving in wet or snowy conditions. Low visibility due to underperforming or damaged wiper blades is dangerous for you and other motorists. At Merrill Automotive, we do more than engine maintenance services, we can also help you stay on top of safety items like wiper blades.
Have you had a tire inspection recently? We can check tire pressure and visually inspect the tires for defects, uneven wear, or manufacturing dates to ensure the tires aren’t past their usable life. Expired tires can be dangerous. Most tire manufactures have a life expectancy for rubber much lower than some people would expect. Don’t forget the spare tire — often forgotten until that unexpected flat. Nothing is more frustrating than having a spare tire you can’t use because it wasn’t’ checked as part of your regular maintenance.
Quickie lube shops don’t usually check tires, brakes, suspension components, or take your vehicle for a test drive. With longer intervals between oil services, it is now recommended that the tires get rotated and balanced with each oil change. Before we could rotate tires every other oil service — that is not the case anymore. Tires are pricey, keeping them inflated and rotated will help prolong their life and have your car driving and stopping as required.
